Training Camp Live: AJ left practice
 
Training Camp Live just anounced that AJ pulled up in a 1-on-1 drill. They think its a minor groin injury.

Hopefully he'll be fine. At least it's not his hammy I guess.

Can we swallow our pride and forget about "character talk" and make a business decision and get Plaxico at least for the season?

Andre Johnson tweaked his groin during a 1-on-1 drill Sunday morning, but is expected to be fine within a few days.
Coach Gary Kubiak is "not too concerned" and shutting him down for the day was simply a precautionary measure. Johnson, 31, deserves an injury red flag after missing 12 games due to injury over the last two seasons, but his upside makes him worth a look in the second round of your draft. Jul 29 - 11:37 AM

When are we going to talk about the elephant in the living room? This is no longer a "freak" accident thing. The guy's got MAJOR issues with hamstrings, groins, and other tendons, and has for 2-3 years and it's only going to get worse with age. It's only a matter of time before he goes down again. If he plays 16 games this year, I'll eat my shorts.

Is it time to propose the "Hakeem" rule? Get what you can for him while his trade value remains high. I HATE the idea too, so don't throw maters but at what point do we cut our losses and move on. The guy is a walking injury waiting to happen and he doesn't help the team standing on the sideline with a towel over his head. :kitten:

I hate to agree, but I do. The dude is on the wrong side of 30 and while he's still an amazing player when he's 100%, he's not 100% very often any more.

I sure hope those young WRs pan out.

I agree 100% the fact every little thing he does now he gets injured makes me sick to my stomach. AJ is not going to be able to play the full 16 games this season and then postseason as well if he is already having problems.

We seriously need to address this situation before it gets worse.

While I don't think it's time for a panic alert this should be a genuine concern for the coaching staff.

We're a snap away from our WR corps looking like this:

A #2 who hasn't been an effective #2 in several years now in KW

2 rookies with mixed OTAs and Mini camp results. I have heard Martin has done well, while Posey struggled.

A second year UDFA coming of a IR year in Lestar Jean.

Bryant Johnson.

For sure a warranted opinion

Valid concern but I would wait to see how the rest of the season plays out before going nuclear with a Hakeem like trade (Stevie Fanchise and Cuttino Mobley...is that all we got?)

He had hamsting issues last year 2011. The year before 2010 it was his ankle. 2007 it was an MCL/PCL. 2005 it was his calf or knee.

I think he has had a bad string of years. He does have 2-3 year shelf life in high level production. But the team as a whole has the same shelf life before losing key players because of contract extensions, free agency and age.

I say just wait because this injury seems to be more minor than anything.

2 days? Even I thought he'd make it a little longer than that. But I never bought the reports that he was ready to play, because with those injuries you don't know until you go full speed.

Hey Rick, how many more muscle and tendon injuries from Andre do we need to see before you start taking this seriously?

What exactly is the "Hakeem Rule"? The Rockets wanted Olajuwon to retire, and traded him as a courtesy to Hakeem.
